Pete: 85 lbs Weight Loss*
I have been overweight since elementary school. In High School, I was on the wrestling team but had to wrestle in the heavier weight classes. During my junior and senior year of High School, my parents signed me up for a “teen” weight loss program. I felt out of place because I was the oldest one there. Some of the other kids couldn’t even run a whole mile, but at that time I could. I had limited success with that program.
In College I continued to put on weight. During my last year of college, the health center at school was running a free weight loss program. My wife encouraged me to sign up and the program worked pretty well for a while. At one point I got myself down to 300lbs. During that time I had a career change that required me to move to a new city and this threw off my schedule. I was off my exercise routine and started over eating again. I started to put the weight back on that I had lost. Life got busy.
A few years later I had to deal with another life altering event…my wife was diagnosed with cancer. I took on the role of caretaker and did all that I could for her and continued to ignore my health. My wife passed away in 2010 and my primary care physician brought up concerns over my health. I could tell at that time how much more weight I had put on as stairs were difficult to clime and I would get winded easily.
I finally decided it was time to take control of my health in 2012. I came in to see Dr. Lazarus and we discussed my weight related health issues and he helped me design a plan to bring my weight under control. I have gained so much back with the help of Dr. Lazarus and Clinical Nutrition Center. Take a look at my current before and after photo and you will see how far I have come!
On the left: Feb 2011 Weight 350+ (wasn’t using the scale then). On the right: 7/19/2013 Weight 284. When I went in to talk to Dr. Lazarus I weighed 369. Today I have lost 85 lbs. and I am not interested in finding them ever again. I never thought that I looked over weight…but when I look at these photos, I know that I was.
Thank you Dr. Lazarus and Clinical Nutrition Center!
